Whatever one thinks of it, Wilsonianism was able to generate an almost religious fervor among its believers during the Great War and during World War II, a sense of exaltation that was prompted by Wilson’s imaginative ability to see the redemptive possibilities in what otherwise would have been an unspeakably bleak world situation.

Various other elements of Wilson’s thought-world, such as free-market economic internationalism, anti-imperialism, and cultural internationalism via Anglo-Saxonism, have either been exaggerated or they have been so successful that there is no longer much need for them; they are fi xed features of the international landscape for the foreseeable future, at least.

31 But the American authorities did not want to unify Germany if the price were neutrality. They wanted the largest and richest part of Germany linked to an American-directed Atlantic community. The Marshall Plan became the dividing line. From that, all else followed: the currency reform of June 1948 that fused the economies of the three Western zones, the creation of an independent West German state under American protection and influence, and the signing of the North Atlantic Treaty in 1949.

In 1950, five years after the end of World War II, the United States moved to create a West German army and bring it into the newly-formed NATO. The lines of the cold war were drawn. Each side preferred a divided Germany and a divided Europe to a unified Germany and a unified, possibly nonaligned, Europe. The restoration of Western Europe under American economic assistance and military protection created a new reality: not a European community, but rather an Atlantic community of states linked by strong economic, military, and political ties.
